If you have followed my blog, a couple of months ago I started to develop a Rightmove app for Android. I got to the stage where I felt I should seek permission to release the app using the data supplied from Rightmove before I continued. Unfortunately they refused.
A few week ago I started to look for a new data source that provides property data to be included in the application. I found that data from Google.
Over the past few days I’ve been working to get the application to a preview state where I feel it’s buggy stable enough to use. The application is now available to download via the Android Market.
Here are a couple of images showing the application in use.
And a promo image;
Future plans include social sharing via email, twitter etc from within the application and also launch a website that can assist with displaying the properties to non android users.
